Dr. Justin James
Dr. James is a passionate husband and father of 4. He and his wife, Rachael, have been living and serving the Summerville community for over 10 years. After leaving College of Charleston to attend Life University Dr. James knew he would return to the Lowcountry to open his own clinic. After many months of research the area he decided Summerville felt like the best place to raise a family and start a practice.
Dr. Justin and Rachael strive to live the most holistic, natural lifestyle possible. Both are avid CrossFit(ters), public speakers, and wellness coaches. Their family eats a mostly Paleo diet that includes homemade ferments such as lacto-fermented veggies, kombucha and raw milk yogurt to name a few. All 4 children were born at home and have been adjusted from birth. Dr. Justin believes his active, healthy, natural lifestyle as lead to his family being completely medication free. Dr. James and his wife feel like their life goal is to help educate and guide families to live a healthier and more abundant life.
